Fiction. Mystery. Suspense. Thriller. HTML:From Americas #1 bestselling crime writers comes an extraordinary #1 New York Times bestselling Kay Scarpetta novel.
Leaving behind her private forensic pathology practice in Charleston, South Carolina, Kay Scarpetta accepts an assignment in New York City, where the NYPD has asked her to examine an injured man on Bellevue Hospitals psychiatric prison ward. The handcuffed and chained patient, Oscar Bane, has specifically asked for her, and when she literally has her gloved hands on him, he begins to talkand the story he has to tell turns out to be one of the most bizarre she has ever heard.
The injuries, he says, were sustained in the course of a murder . . . that he did not commit. Is Bane a criminally insane stalker who has fixed on Scarpetta? Or is his paranoid tale true, and it is he who is being spied on, followed and stalked by the actual killer? The one thing Scarpetta knows for certain is that a woman has been tortured and murderedand more violent deaths will follow. Gradually, an inexplicable and horrifying truth emerges: Whoever is committing the crimes knows where his prey is at all times. Is it a person, a government? And what is the connection between the victims?
In the days that follow, Scarpetta; her forensic psychologist husband, Benton Wesley; and her niece, Lucy, who has recently formed her own forensic computer investigation firm in New York, will undertake a harrowing chase through cyberspace and the all-too-real streets of the cityan odyssey that will take them at once to places they never knew, and much, much too close to home.
Throughout, Cornwell delivers shocking twists and turns, and the kind of cutting-edge technology that only she can provide. Once again, she proves her exceptional ability to entertain and enthrall.

I have to confess that had I not had to finish this for my reading group I would have put it down after about 250 pages. To understand what is going on, you need to have read all the previous books in the series. Also, conversations go on for pages longer than necessary, characters have confusingly similar names (Marino and Morales) and Scarpetta herself, who appears to be a constant preoccupation for Wesley, Lucy and Marino, seems a cold and detached person. After the incredibly long winded exposition of the first two thirds of the book, the author seems to realise she has almost reached her contractually obliged word count and polishes off the far fetched plot in about three chapters. The first few in this series were good, but it has long since gone off the boil.

four out of five only because I thought it was drawn out and didn't seem to move along in the plot. or maybe it was because it has been so long since I had read one in this series! ( )

Dejando atrás su práctica privada de patología forense en Charleston, Carolina del Sur, Kay Scarpetta acepta una asignación en la ciudad de Nueva York, donde la policía de Nueva York le ha pedido que examine a un hombre herido en la sala de la prisión psiquiátrica del Hospital Bellevue. El paciente esposado y encadenado, Oscar Bane, ha preguntado específicamente por ella, y cuando literalmente tiene sus manos enguantadas sobre él, él comienza a hablar, y la historia que tiene que contar resulta ser una de las más extrañas que jamás haya tenido.

Five days a week I have a two hour commute to school and have been listening to audio books. I loved the early Scarpetta novels but lost a little steam with the last few, but with this this novel I'm a born-again Cornwell junkie! ( )

While I enjoy Patricia Cornwell I found this novel long, drawn out and sometimes a tad bit boring. I have read so many that were great and a few not as interesting but will continue to read her books. ( )

Trouble is, Scarpetta no longer travels without her posse — her husband,... her niece,... as well as Pete Marino... — and it takes the first 100 pages of this overlong narrative just to explain (none too convincingly) how they all happen to be in New York at the same time, working on the same case.
